Willow Smith was once dreaming up potential co-stars for the "Annie" remake her parents are producing, but it looks like she's out of the project.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Sony announced Wednesday that Willow was no longer in consideration for the lead role because she's outgrown it. She was just nine when the development process began, but the singer/actress is now approaching her 13th birthday this fall.
Yet while Sony needs to think of a new lead actress, the studio does have an idea of who they want to helm the movie. Will Gluck ("Easy A," "Friends with Benefits" is reportedly in negotiations to lead the remake, which would take place in the modern day and have a soundtrack steered by Jay-Z.
"At the helm of 'Annie,' [Gluck] will bring to this film all the charm of the original Broadway production while also appealing to a new generation,” studio executives said in a press release.
Willow's parents Will and Jada Pinkett Smith are producing the film through their Overbrook Entertainment company.
When will Hollywood realize we want original material...not re-hashed trashy remakes of already great movies? They're ruining it all.
another script for budson Benz
Urkel really let himself go.
SHE DOESN'T KNOW WE KNOW SHE JUMPS AROUND RESPONSES..SO WE ARE EXCLUDED FROM HER STUPIDITY
at some point...
I guess the Smith's realized they already destroyed the KARATE KID........
That is one fugly looking little boy.
yeah I agree....it took me a minute to realize it was Will's daughter and not his son – I've seen better shots, I am thinking Willow is not looking very attractive in that photo.
enjoy the day.
the bazooms will be outside all day long...
Will & Jada sold out their own kids for money, problem is who the heck wants to see these little ego driven brats.. I for one would never pay for any movie they are in.
he got a little nasty with me about that d-off thing cancellation...like when did i ever not cooperate about d-off's–he's ded when he gets back. lolololol
Some genuinely good articles on this website, appreciate it for contribution. "Give me the splendid silent sun with all his beams full-dazzling." by Walt Whitman. Sallome http://alittledoseoflaughter.tumblr.com

Her parents subjected her to public scrutiny when they decided she can take on the acting profession and all that comes along with it. It has nothing to do with race. Will made it on sheer talent and I adore him. Question is: if Willow comes to an audition as just herself would she get the part?
as long audtion confusion stops–her parents are beyond established...
thank you girls and the green light-pls go see them when you can. thanks!
You are pathetic, just like your name Zombie
i'm growing my hair which is soo difficult when its been short.....in the end long s-xy black hair is much nicer.
WIll...my man....sack up and get your little girl looking like a little girl. She's got your ears, ffs....get her growing some hair to cover those things up. She looks like she's an alien trying to pick up signals from deep space from MIB-IV
its an addiction and people are going to say and do what they want anyway because they have the right like other bloggers to do so....enjoy the day don't take things so personal.
my baby is wearing the double strand pears and earrings i gave her for her 30th birthday...i'm so proud
Rumor has it that Tom Cruise is up for this role.
actually, Tom's secret boyfriend is in the running for the part. Tom may get the role of Pepper. They are both giddy as schoolgirls over the prospect.
So this is what happens to all those playground bullies we knew growing up: they become website comment section trolls, hiding behind anonymity in order to make insipid, hateful, remarks about other people and getting off on it. You should all be so proud of yourselves (pathetic losers). Might I suggest that each of you haters embark on a quest to get a life?
well unfortunately you have a point but here's the thing. There is a little thing in the US called freedom of speech. The end. If you can't handle it, don't read the stories and the comments. Stay off the internet if you can't handle what people say on here. It works.
agreed... if you can't handle what's on tv or internet...then don't watch it....your so smart.
i totally agree with one question also......if you don't like the 2 then close all "communcation" cuz they ain't goin no place....
Annie will always and will be a cute, adorable, loving and ginger haired girl. Not a girl with a one hit song and having parents like Will and Jada. Don't get me wrong, Black celebrities know how to keep money in the family by doing things like this. Have their kids or push them to get roles that weren't meant for Black people. Great thing is that Willow will not star in this and if she did, am I suppose to accept that daddy warbux is a black rich man?
And the sky will ALWAYS be blue in your narrow-minded, white bread little world now, won't it Sanders? You should get out more, try thinking outside the box, get creative...use your IMAGINATION.
Thank god. The nepotism in Hollywood is sickening. There are so many talented actors who are not selected because people in Hollywood hire their own untalented family. The Smiths, Kate Hudson, Drew Barrymore, etc – really people, you have enough money to share with your family, let them do something else and hire people who are amazing and need the work.
ITS JUST JOKES....PUT YOUR CRACKPIPES DOWN FOR GOODNESS SAKES...
stop working so hard...its all been a buh bye for months now....
255, 255.0–is that a good price.
you done been had, sucka!
how is one suppose to react when being called a fat unmarried wench...is she suppose to hello you look nice today...
no she's going too say you suck! pls don't make me start laughing...it will never end.
Jr High kids. They are figuring themselves out. Willow attracts attention because of her famous, rich parents. It appears none of you have children or grand children in this age group. They wear what they like even though an adult wouldn't think of it. I.e. White tunic with iridescent plastic sequins, jeans, bright aqua Keds. Yep my granddaughter. They weren't supposed to be worn together but she loved it. If they are confident so what. Don't pick on kids. They will try to burn the photos of themselves in 10 years.
Not to worry, Will Smith AKA Nepotism Productions will find another classic to ruin for his gangly spawn.
What you call nepotism is what the world calls Black people with power leveling the playing field. Its freaks like yourself who if able would make no talent white people movies only. Go to hell freak!!!!!
something else she didn't subscribe too...email flood - buh bye.
don't feel bad–she's a happy camper...
I feel bad for Willow... I think she is a great actress and we need more greatness like this
Please, put the crack pipe down and step away.
dumb as a brick
You forgot to end your coment with LOL!
They shouldnt cast this spoilt brat in anything. How can she play a poor orphan!? Shes one of the most spoilt little shizzez on the planet. Daddy put you in a movie?
Sorry, I don't like Will Smith or his two smug little jerks.
Lead role? Isn't Annie a pale ginger kid?
Thank God – she's horrible.
i feel bad.
what the fk is a shiz.
its so sad.
VAN HALEN...NOTHING MORE...
people are sooo illiterate sometimes.
Your a bit ch,always got something to say but too cowardly to use a actual name.
Yeah, like Big Shiz is an actual name.
Stupid ape moron.
It's spelled piece, big dik.
grow up already....worst blogs every...get with the times.
This looks like this is tailor made for Quvenzhané Wallis, the little Oscar nominee to take her place in this.
Hmm maybe if they're set on having a "Black Annie". But she's a little young, Annie is supposed to be 10. It takes so long for movies to get off the ground it could work out.
Anyone who makes fun of a child is a peace of sh it.
But isn't she ugly? Do you want to smooch with her? Perv.
Big Shiz is a turd burglar..
I met Big Shiz's parents once..they are really nice guys!
Yes, both of his dads seem like decent guys.
Hey ronny,I see your mom all the time. After she gives up that money I send her back to the street corner.
Why consider her
If any of you above commentators are above 16...you're just sad, sad, sad, ugly spirited adults. She's a child, yes in entertainment, but dang...ever heard of "if you don't have anything nice to say"??? I bet you so called "adults" teach that to your kids, and we wonder why kids these days are so uncaring and non compassionate! I bet ALL of you have pictures from awkward teenage years!
welcome to the marquee blogs.
Great points. All of them.
She is mighty fugly though. Admit it. I wonder what Will and Jada think?
I was just going to ask the same thing....how old are these people leaving stupid, immature comments. Time to move on....
That po girl been dropped down the ugly tree many many times. Seems all the branches hit her in the face.
She may not be the cutest kid, but she has enough money to buy you and your poor trailer trash family.
Wow, a grown-up making fun of a little kid's looks. You must be so proud of yourself. I'm willing to bet large sums of money, Shanaynay, that you're an overweight, unsightly lump of waste-matter to such an extent that Willow Smith would look like Miss America by comparison.
"Willow Smith would look like Miss America by comparison"
I think you mean MR. America. There is no way that little dude is going to win any female beauty contest.
YAY! was not looking forward to seeing her in it.
different hairstyle please. thankyou.
is Willow masculine?
Who would actually pay to see one will smith's spoiled little brats, I can't stand the ego driven little brats.
good lawd that girl be ugly
All these years, I always thought Willow was a boy. The name, the hair, the face, all look like a boy. I was shocked to see "Her" and "She", and I discovered HE is a SHE. Holy cow, if "she" was a "he" He would be much cuter.
Looks like she won't be whipping her hair back and forth anymore because.. she doesn't... nevermind...
When the time is right her parents can afford plastic surgery. She's just a kid.
Is she so ugly she'd have to sneak up on a glass of water to get a drink? Lol. Good one dude!
And she still looks better than you(im guessing thats because your mom and sister are the same person).
They wonder why we don't pay for their crap movies any more. Torrent downloads, for me, please.
America loves remakes just like the presidential election. Bit chs
They would have to change her name to something like Annieshaqundraquay.
And she would not be an orphan.
She'd live in a two bedroom ghetto row home with her 15 year old mom, her 30 year old grandmom, her 45 year old great grandmom and her 60 year old great great grandmom.
None of them would ever have been married.
Better than living in a pig pen like you and your family. But I guess that's where pigs stay.
LOL! So entertaining reading posts from racist, jealous, losers! Comical!
She lives in a house,you live in a trailer park.
"She lives in a house"
That little dude looks like a tootsie roll got dropped in some a s s hair.
Still looks better than the women in your family,I mean talk about beasts.
Your comment is rude,she is a child. Jurkface
comment isn't rude. It is accurate. She looks like a boy. I'm sure she will mature into a pretty girl, but she's got a ways to go.
It dosnt matter if its accurate or not its wrong to talk about a child like that. Karma is a bi tch and Yall will get yours.
We didn't pick that picture. What reaction did you actually expect? Most people are a little gawky at that age. I'm sure she will grow into a pretty girl, but right now, that is not a great look.
That's no the point dikhead,you dont talk sh it about a child. Your mom didn't raise you right. I remember when people in this country had manners.
vixen, I didn't think you liked kids? Sure are putting on a good show for the people, though. I wonder how the real big shiz likes you stealing his name all the time. hehehehehe
dint u here ? vixen got knocked up by one of her one nite stands. she gots to like them now. you will be seeing her on the maury show in seven more months to find out who the daddy.
Sorry sweetheart. That's not me posting as Big Shiz. I actually thought it was him.
@12:32..lol..you're an asz.
that vixen just happens to pop up to defend her honor. Way too obvious.
No. Really that's not me. I don't want anything to do with that guy.
yer story, spin it the way u want. I aint a azz neither. I speaks the truth.
Whatever. Frankly I don't care what you think. I hope the person keeps it up just to p¡ss you and him off.
you mean fit and cc. never wooda thought that. you a good pi vixen. lol
I wasn't thinking of them. I don't know what happened between the sisters with those two, but I'm sure they're still on here. I won't put anything pass that wack job CC. I'm sure the Mad Rap3er is around as well. Just my take on things.
that mad is here, too. what happened to that guy? he used to be quite funny. what is with all the trolling, especially on the women on here? kind of strange.
I don't know. I only saw one comment posted bad about Sadie and Peace yesterday. It was bad, but I think it was deleted. Someone said it was Mad, but why would he say that about Peace? I thought it was the lunatic CC. Who knows. Don't you get tired of trying to figure out who is writing what? It's draining.
it has been draining for a long time. Why can't people just leave it alone? I don't get the satisfaction that they get out of it. Puzzling.
Yea. Well, you enjoy the rest of the day. I have to go back to my street corner. Rumors have it that where I work. Lol.. L8tr :)
Yall are retarded
So...do you wear the pointy hood and white sheet when you troll this site, or do you just save it for special occasions, like Klan rallies?
just like your momma, huh? Maybe she and willow will hook up.
